by terrorists in north africa. we have the latest as some of the missing make their way home. >>> from new york city, this is "nightline" with bill weir. >> good evening, thanks for staying up late with us tonight. well, a cancer survivor wins the most grueling race in the world seven times clean. it's the kind of story we want to believe in, right? well, tonight brought confirmation from lance armstrong that on the contrary, he was really a cheating, lying bully who spent years destroying the lives of anyone who dared speak the truth about his fraudulent fame. there was a time when such a man would be put in stocks in the public square for neighbors to spit on, but the modern version is a visit with oprah. anyone expecting explosive condemnation from her or contrite tears from him tonight was disappointed. >> reporter: even though we knew it was coming, hearing lance armstrong say it out loud was surreal. >> did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> did you ever blood dope or use blood transfusions to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> in all
terrorism in north africa or for stepping up aid development, all of the other issues she used to talk about so regularly as a way of trying to stop terrorism from taking root in countries like this. and i think the interesting thing will be to see whether senator kerry, when he goes to testify tomorrow in his confirmation hearing, whether or not he comes to it with more of a sort of big picture strategy of what he would do within the region. now, it's possible that one reason the secretary didn't have that, is, of course, she's been out sick for a good number of weeks and they have been cons e consumed by the individual incident in benghazi. >> of course, the overriding question that the republican critics have been focusing on is susan rice, the talking points, this is another one of the exchanges with senator johnson and hillary clinton. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately there was no protest? that was a piece of information that koufcould have been easily easily obtained within hours, if
to the united states and our partners in north africa. i think it is important we understand the context for this challenge as we work together to protect our people and honor our fallen colleagues. any clear eyed examination of this matter must begin with this sobering fact. since 1988 there have been 19 accountability review boards, investigating attacks on american diplomats and their facilities. since 1977, 65 american diplomatic personnel have been killed by terrorists. in addition to those who have been killed, we know what happened in tehran, with hostages being taken in 1979, our embassy and marine barracks bombed in beirut in 1983, khobar towers in saudi arabia in 1996, our embassies in east africa in 1998, consulate staff murdered in jeddah, saudi arabia in 2004, the coast attack in afghanistan in 2009 and too many others. but i also want to stress the list of attacks that were foiled, crises averted and lives saved is even longer. we should never forget that the security professionals get it right more than 99% of the time against difficult odds because the terrorists only nee
reports. >> and other terrorist threat in north africa. the foreign office told all britons in benghazi to leave immediately because of a specific and imminent danger. >> this is a turbulent part of north africa and the whole of the region, north africa is an area where various militant groups organize. want to prevent that threat but we have got to put the safety of british citizens first. >> libyan officials say the warning to them by surprise. >> this announcement hints at something that is not exist on the ground. this is not justified enough in our opinion. >> only a few months ago, a large group of well-armed men attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi, killing the american ambassador and three others. over the last few months, the security situation has deteriorated after the attacks in benghazi last september. the start of this year saw molly coming close to control by islamists. an attack was launched on a remote gas facility in algeria. in a sign of just how many groups are active, he has not thought to be behind this latest threat. it is less than two years. with the guns of
those threats are growing in north africa. the attacks last week in algeria again show the nature of the danger. i support having a wide diplomatic presence. we can't retreat. as you recognized in your testimony. but it has to be done with the safety of our personnel foremost in mind. this committee intends to work with with your department in a bipartisan way to improve security. every organization has shortcomings. few welcome them being highlighted. it's this committee's job to get answers to the tough questions. our goal is to identify where state department management broke down, thus failing to protect our people in benghazi. it is clear that the problem was not confined to a few individuals. the accountability review board convened by you, madam secretary, found "systemic failure in leadership in management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the state department. according to the board, these systemic failures led to the grossly inadequate security in libya. the benghazi compound was facing a storm of militancy and a flood of weapons, and facing a deteriora
that are scattered throughout north africa and other places. and i think this creates an opportunity for us to develop a policy that really addresses the world as it really is today. and then, thirdly, madam secretary, i know that it was a great personal loss to you that chris stevens died in the way that he did and his three colleagues died in the way that they did. i know that you know i was on the ground in the libya, immediately after this, and i know you've experienced this and some of the other members of the committee have, but to look at the faces of those on the ground in libya, in a state of shock. people that we sent there, doing expeditionary diplomacy, who felt like they were on a tether and candidly not have the support from washington that they needed to do the things that they needed to do. so i think this is an opportunity for us to examine the systemic failures. i know that you're going to be, as per our conversation last night, as transparent as you have always been. i think this is a great opportunity for the incoming secretary to learn from what has happened. and i know
al qaeda in any form weather in north africa or in any other reason? those questions we hope to answer here tonight. former cia operative michael sawyer joins us, middle east affairs and author and columnis and member of the council on foreign relations monicker crowley among our guests tonight. we begin with it jennifer griffith who has the latest on was spared the hostage crisis and the fate of those involved. >> the kidnappers themselves said they took dozens of hostages at the bp oil and gas facility in response to algeria giving the french permission to fly into neighboring mali where french troops are trying to push back al qaeda-ling to preble's. >> instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. >> more than 41 foreign oil workers were captured by the al qaeda-linked group whose leader lost an eye fighting in afghanistan. dozens of areas were also taken and then released. it is one of the largest hostage-taking incidents in recent memory. at 7:00 a.m. eastern algerian forces which had surrounded the dp complex without

. and they say 30 hostage. what is clear after this incident is the growing al qaeda threat in north africa. >> al qaeda is still there. they are still a threat. they are a threat in yemen. they are a threat in somalia. they are a threat as we speak in mali. >> instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. again it's still unclear how many died in this botched military raid. >> jennifer griffin from the pentagon in that fox report tonight. thank you, jennifer. the hostage takers meanwhile claim the raid was for revenge for the french assault on militants next door in the country of mali. fox news has learned the attack was in the works long before france launched its military operation in that country. learning more about the one-eyed terrorists ordering the raid and ties to al qaeda. details on that story coming up tonight on "the fox report." imaginary girlfriend and star football player at the center of a scandal that has transcended the world of college sports. tonight we have a lot more questions than answers, frankly. it all involves
, this pandora's box, if you will, of weapons coming out of these countries in the middle east and north africa is the source of one of our biggest threats. there's no doubt that the algerian terrorists had weapons from libya. >> shepard: and secretary clinton says the u.s. has to do a better job of tracking and recovering those weapons. team fox coverage continues now. catherine herridge at the state department. catherine, secretary clinton also said we have to pay more attention to the threat from terrorists in north africa, which you have been telling us really here for months. >> well, shep, secretary clinton said publicly today what intelligence officials have been saying privately that the libyan weapons are fueling the instability in north africa. today secretary clinton making a direct link between the libyan weapons and the algerian hostage crisis last week that killed a handful of americans. what we heard from clinton today, citing these images from the site intelligence group this is really more evidence that al qaeda in north africa does possess the libyan weapons and that al qaeda
or how to deal with north africa or any of other issues. there are serious concerns about john kerry not completely understanding the nature of assad for example. but i don't know that is really going to change anything with the administration policy. >> i want to play a sound bite from yesterday that we didn't focus on. hillary clinton about weapons. >> so, this pandora's box if you will of weapons, coming out of these countries in the middle east and north africa is the source of one of our biggest threats. there is no doubt that the algerian terrorist had weapons from libya. there is no doubt that the malian remnants of aqium have weapons from libya. >> bret: this is the first time publicly we heard the secretary of state say the weapons from libya are in the hands of aqium, al-qaeda in the islamic magrab. in algeria, in mali, from libya. a lot of these weapons are from us. the u.s. we gave to libya. the question that senator rand paul asked was were we moving weapons to syria through turkey and other places. but the secretary of state was taking about libya, weapons from libya no
days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> well, core al qaeda certainly has been. i think would you hear the same from the intelligence committee, or d.o.d., the work that has been done in afghanistan, in the borders area between afghanistan, pakistan certainly has taken out a whole codry of leadership. what we ar
of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond. and i think what the president clearly said is we will respond and we will bring those to justice. and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good example that it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decembimated and in li of the recent terrorist acts tists we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you character that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> core al qaeda certainly has been. you would hear the same from the intelligence community or d.o.d., the work that has been done in afghanistan and the borders area between afghanistan and pakistan certainly has taken out a who
difference at this point does it maix? >> ifill: plus, how has the turmoil in north africa overall affected u.s. foreign policy? we get some answers. >> brown: then, two military stories. we get the latest on defense secretary leon panetta's decision to lift the ban on women serving in combat. >> ifill: and we explore the pros and cons of drone warfare and examine the technology behind it-- the subject of tonight's edition of "nova." >> our mind tries to put it in terms of robot or human? but the reality is a mix. >> brown: we close with politics and a look at the way forward for the republican party, tatdends he nn'iodebt houseten limit for three months. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour."n' >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: secretary of state hillary clinton testified for the first time today about last septemb
: mark, thanks very much. the last time americans were killed by terrorists was also in north africa last september. four died, including the u.s. ambassador, in the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya. now, u.s. forces are about to go to the aid of the french in mali, and david martin has the late-breaking developments. >> reporter: the u.s. has agreed to airlift a battalion of french troops and tanks into mali, part of a military intervention which has stirred up a hornet's nest of al qaeda-linked groups in north africa. according to u.s. intelligence these groups are likely to strike western targets again. rudolph attallah is the pentagon's former head of counter-terrorism for africa. do you expect more terrorist attacks? >> yes. these guys are savvy. they are... they've been prepared for a fight, like i said, for a long time, and they're not going to take it lying down. they are going to... they are going to show that they are capable of... of putting some pain against the west. >> reporter: the attack on the gas complex in algeria was carried out by a group whose leader ha
this was a spontaneous, 1-off denstration gone awry, or was in the leading edge of a resurgence of al qaeda in north africa, which would later impact mali and create dead americans and others in algeria. that is the essence of finding out what happened. yet, in the have second before she says, what difference does it make if it was a spontaneous demonstration or something else? that is a complete contradiction. there is not anybody that pointed it out. the essence of what happened is, is this a resurgence of al qaeda, and w is that the administration went weeks and weeks with attending it had to do with a video, when there was no demonstration in the first place? >> if i am not mistaken, the president, the next day, did say it was an act of terror. >> he did not. >> he said it in the rose garden the very next day. we would check the teleprompter, ok? everybody who watched this, as i di came to one conclion. hillary clinton was the grown- up. she was being yelled at by a group of adolescents. i will say this about ron paul. in 30 years of congress, he was never boarish. his son, in two years establi
of a resurgence of al qaeda in north africa which would later impact mali and create dead americans and others in algeria? that is the essence of finding out what happened. yet, and have second before, she says, what difference does it make if it was a spontaneous demonstration or something else? that is a complete contradiction. there is that anybody that pointed it out. the essence of what happened is, is this a resurgence of al qaeda? why is it that the id ministration went weeks and weeks in attending it had to do with a video, when there was no demonstration in the first place? >> if i am not mistaken, the president, the next day, did say it was an act of terror. >> did not, that is false. >> he did say it the very next day in the rose garden. we will check the teleprompter, ok? anybody who watched this, as i did, came to one conclusion hillary clinton was the grown- up. she was being beset by a group of carping adolescence. i will say this about ron paul. in 30 years of congress, the gentleman from texas was never boarish. his son, and barely two years, established a new level of force n
in algeria, north africa, was the murder of at least 37 hostages, including three americans at the militants attack a natural gas plant in the eastern part of the country. the al-qaida splinter group called the signers with blood brigade claimed responsibility. question is the volatility in north africa an outcome of the arab spring, or does it predate the arab spring? patrick. >> john, some of it predates the arab spring, but what this shows, and what the hillary thing was about, the complete disaster of what we done libya. we dumped over this corrupt dictator and all these forces moved out of there. they went into mali. you have al-qaida in the mob grab moving through that, they're in mauretania and niger. the point of this is the administration covered up the fact that al-qaida was not on the run, it was not on the path to defeat, it was responsible for what happened in benghazi, and it is all over the place now. >> we're letting the french handle things now. i think it's more kind of leading from behind on foreign policy, and it's incredibly dangerous, because as pat was saying, al-qaida
dangerous as we lack a central command and instead have these nodes scattered throughout north africa and other places. this creates an opportunity for us to address the world as it really is today. thirdly, i know it was a great personal loss to you that chris stevens died in the way he did and his three colleagues died the way they did. i know you have experienced this and some other members have, but look at the faces of those on the ground in libya in a state of shock, people we send there, doing expeditionary diplomacy, who felt they were on a tether and did not have the support from washington they needed, to do the things they needed to do. i think this is an opportunity for us to examine the failures. i know you will be as transparent as you have always been. this is a great opportunity for the incoming secretary to learn from what has happened. many times, political appointees have great difficulties with the bureaucracy that exists within a the department where people think they can wait you out. this is an opportunity for us also to develop a foreign policy that reflects, a
east and north africa as we've seen in the past few days has become a major problem. that's where we'll see senator kerry head pretty soon. >> michael: let's talk about north africa, at least 35 people were killed when the islamists took hostage at the bp facility. is this another area we have to worry about al-qaeda. we talk about it with mali and somalia as well. is this a concern. >> the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa is well-known to mideast watchers and analysts. it has not gotten the attention of the american public because the american public doesn't give much attention to north africa but give what happened in algeria and mali, and the united states is beginning to airlift french troops in so they're playing an auxiliary role. certainly algeria needs to get more u.s.-focused since we had three americans killed there. >> michael: and you know, skipping around the region, what do you make of the poor showing thatthat benjamin netanyahu received. >> he has a little bit of coalition support. he and the party they got 31 seats. you need a majority of 61 to really governor. the
in mali are substantial and north africa mill tans are only a step close tort european continent. the obama administration says it is only lending logistical support to mali's defenders, cautiously treading water while the outgoing secretaries of defense and state publicly support further u.s. involvement. last week, hillary clinton told a congressional hearing that we must recognize that groups alined with al qaeda are part of a global movement. quote, we can kill leaders but until we help establish strong democratic institutions, we are going to be faced with this level of instability, close quote. but what's more, she added, we cannot afford to retreat now when america's absent, there are consequences. yes, you heard that right. a battle cry from the same woman who grimly opposed the war in vietnam and made no secret of her distaste for american armed forces in general while she and bill occupied the white house. mami is just one domino. yes, i said domino, in the great terrorist threat to north africa. with porous boundary, the militants move easily from mali to algeria to li
anticipate for north africa in a way he couldn't have anticipated when he comes into office is now unstable, think about tunisia, egypt, libya. and there's a great deal of potential for an al qaeda 3.0 to really take root and become a major problem for this administration. >> i think that it's a real concern. there's real reason why secretary of state clinton said it as kind of a parting warning because al qaeda is filling in the empty spaces. and with the revolution in libya, the incredible arms flow there, al qaeda people who've been trained in afghanistan and come back to the ma greb and able to -- pretty much with impunity. for the united states it hasn't been an area of vital interest ever. it's much closer to europe. it's much more of concern to europe than it has ever been for the united states. that's why we kind of led from behind. >> in libya. >> in libya itself. because europeans were the ones exercised about it. we didn't care that much in terms of vital national interests compare today say the gulf. but just as after the soviet union was thrown out of afghanistan, we considered
to upheaval elsewhere in north africa. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to extend their influence and plot further attacks of the kind we saw just last week in algeria. >> ifill: in mali, elements of al qaeda in the islamic maghreb, known as a.q.i.m., have seized a large swath of territory, prompting france to intervene militarily with air power and ground troops. the u.s. military is providing transport flights to aid the french, and clinton said other assistance is under consideration. >> it is a necessary struggle. we cannot permit northern mali to become a safe haven. people say to me all the time, well, a.q.i.m. hasn't attacked the united states. well, before 9/11, 2011, we hadn't been attacked on our homeland since, i guess, the war of 1812 and pearl harbor. so you can't say, well, because they haven't done something, they're not going to do it. this is not only a terrorist syndicate; it is a crimi
square. we're taking a deep dive into the newest front in the war on terror. north africa. you may remember mitt romney raising the red flag in the midst of the presidential campaign. >> mali has been taken over, the northern part of mali, by al qaeda-type individuals. what we're seeing is a pretty dramatic reversal in the kind of hopes that we had for that region. >> there's some snarky tweets after mitt romney said that, but turns out, hindsight, he was right on. next, democratic senator chris coons on what secretary clinton calls a very serious ongoing threat. you're watching "the daily rundown," only on msnbc. ♪ we, we chocolate cross over. ♪ yeah, we chocolate cross over. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing fiber one 80 calorie chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. >>> if the last ten years were about targeting terrorists in the middle east, the next ten will likely be focused on them in north africa. we're looking at the dramatic developments in countries like algeria and mali, all of them in north africa, a region seemingly tailor made for al qaeda activity. the u.s. and its a
, but that should not mean the war is ending. al-qaeda and its options have taken a strong hold in north africa and targeting and killing americans in the region. the most recent attack was in algeria where a natural gas facility was targeted by an al-qaeda affiliate. dozens of hostages, including americans were killed. right next to algeria is libya, where this past september 11th, ambassador chris stevens and three others were killed when terrorists stormed the american consulate in benghazi. libya has been politically unstable since the 2011 death of president muammar gaddafi. and brings us to the nation of mali, the al-qaeda and the islamic group, and targeting select forces to topple aqim which has other attacks in the area. >> instability in mali has created an expansive safe haven and looking to expand the attacks like we saw last week in algeria. there's no doubt that the algerian terrorists had weapons, and remnant of aqim had weapons from libya. >> mike: joining me now is new york congressman peter king. glad to have you here, i want to begin by talking about what happened in algeria
throughout north africa and other places. i think this creates an opportunity for us to develop a policy that really addresses the world as it really is today. and then, thirdly, madam secretary, i know it was a great personal loss to you that chris stevens died in the way that he did and his three colleagues died in the way that they did. i know you know i was on the ground in libya immediately after this and i know you've experienced this and some of the other members of the committee have but to look at faces of those on the ground in libya, in a state of shock, people that we sent there, doing expeditionary diplomacy, who felt like they were on a tether and candidly did not have the support from washington they needed to do the things that they needed to do. so i think this is an opportunity for us to examine the systemic failures. i know that you're going to be, as per our conversation last night, as transparent as you have always been. i think this is a great opportunity for the incoming secretary to learn prowhat has happened. and i know that many times political appointees have g
